The PMC Kids Ride gives us the opportunity to work together with the Franklin community and make a significant impact in the fight against cancer. We have all been touched in some way with someone who has had cancer. This ride gives children an opportunity to feel that they can make a difference. It empowers kids to become part of the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. This ride also teaches children the value of riding for the benefit of others.
PMC supporters Lisa Marchioni and Lisa Cronin will be organizing the ride along with committee members Sharon Baryluk, Nancy Brogan, Jen Lyons, Joanne Schaefer and Heidi Winiker.
Helmets are required for all riders!
Parents will need to create an account or log in with an existing account in order to register their child or family. When creating an account, please enter the parent's information first as there will be a separate part in registration to enter the child's information. During registration there is the option to join or create a team, as well as create a family page. Parents will need to sign a waiver and commit to the $30 fundraising minimum per rider.
Once registration is complete, parents will receive an email with information on how to log into their management page to customize donation pages and to track donations.
The fundraising minimum for each rider is $30 and is due by September 1, 2019.
Riders who go above and beyond with their fundraising will be recognized Heavy Hitters or Breakaway Fundraisers and will receive a special gift in recognition of their fundraising efforts.
Donate online or by check. Checks can be made payable to the Pan-Mass Challenge or PMC. Please send all checks to:

We have lots of ways you can volunteer for our ride! We need Group leaders to ride with our riders. Group leaders are responsible for 10 riders. We have a group leader in the front and back of each team.
We also have volunteers to help out at our raffle table or food table. We also have lots of volunteers at our Tikes & Trikes area to help with face painting or at one of our many stations we have set up.
Adults and kids age 14 and up can volunteer.
Sponsorships are essential to our ride's success. Your sponsorship can help us reach our goals. Last year we raised $57,000 and with your help, our goal this year is $60,000. Your contribution will go directly to life-saving research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Sponsorship will show your support to our Franklin community and the fight against cancer.
As a sponsor, we will put your business in front of more than 500 event attendees and the Franklin community. We are gratefully accepting individual and corporate donations and items to be included in the raffle on the day of the ride.
